Former Cultural Director of Rockefeller and the Ford Foundations, Dr. Damien Pwono, one of the speakers, in his keynote address on Cultural Diplomacy, commended the President/Executive Producer of AFRIMA for the immense effort of AFRIMA at showcasing the potentials of Africa through its creative industry. He said: “AFRIMA is doing a great job at promoting African culture using its arts, talents, and music, it provides a platform that popularises the dynamism in our culture, thereby creating a sustainable competitive creative economy.”

In its effort to promote the AU agenda 2063, which is to garner strategic framework for the socio-economic transformation of the continent over the next 50 years, the 5th African Union Pan-African Cultural Congress enables creative and cultural experts, researchers, creators/producers of culture, policymakers and cultural promoters to come share ideas, tackle challenges, and formulate best practices towards programmes in Africa in the area of cultural and creative economy and development.

In partnership with the African Union, the All Africa Music Awards is a music property that recognises and rewards the work and talent of a myriad of African artists from the old to the new generation of musicians. Through its conference, AFRIMA also stimulates conversations among Africans and between Africa and the rest of the world about the potential of the creative arts for real humanising enterprise on the continent, contributing significantly to social cohesion, national, regional and continental integration as well as sustainable development in Africa. The award show is usually broadcast to over eighty countries around the world.
